Mariaa Siga

In her latest release, “Mame Bamba,” Senegalese songwriter Mariaa Siga teams up with ARTIKAL BAND to pay homage to Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba, the revered founder of Mouridism and Touba.

This mesmerizing tune not only celebrates Bamba’s legacy as a poet and resistance fighter but also embodies his principles of non-violence.

Recorded in Montpellier, France, “Mame Bamba” is a heartfelt tribute that showcases Siga’s profound respect for Bamba’s teachings. The song’s soulful melodies and rhythmic beats, combined with Mariaa Siga‘s evocative vocals, create a moving musical experience that resonates with listeners.

Directed by Mao Sidibé, the accompanying music video further enhances the song’s message by highlighting the role of women, symbolized by the “Yaye Fall.” Through striking visuals and powerful imagery, the video adds depth to Siga’s homage to Bamba and his teachings.

Mariaa Siga’s musical journey is as impressive as it is diverse. Since relocating to Cannes in 2019, she has garnered numerous accolades, including winning the Baco Records Contest and the Women’s World Cup in Abidjan. Her nominations for prestigious awards such as the Victoires du Reggae and the Découvertes Prize RFI speak to her talent and versatility as an artist.

With a rich history of performances at festivals around the world, including Africajarc and Les Nuits du Sud, Siga has established herself as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. Her independent releases, including two singles on Putumayo Music, have earned her widespread acclaim, further solidifying her status as a rising star.

Looking ahead to 2024, Mariaa Siga is gearing up for the release of her highly anticipated solo album. With her special connection to Brazil, where she ranks as the second-highest streaming artist on platforms like Spotify and YouTube, Siga’s global appeal continues to grow.
